Judas Iscariot had decided to betray Jesus to the chief priests, so he asked them, “What will you give me to betray him into your hands?”
They offered him thirty silver coins and from that moment on, Judas looked for an opportunity to betray Him. (Matthew 26:15-16)
Money is an easy short term distraction, with little long term gain! We must always be very careful!
Lord Jesus, all the money in the world is worthless if it can’t buy me eternal life; open my heart Lord.
Prayer: Be At Peace (St Francis De Sales
Do not look forward in fear to the changes in life;
rather, look to them with full hope that as they arise,
God, whose very own you are, will lead you safely through all things;
and when you cannot stand it, God will carry you in His arms.
Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;
the same understanding Father who cares for you today
will take care of you then and every day.
He will either shield you from suffering
or will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.
